Elevate at Willow South Barrington
We exist to help lead students to become fully devoted followers of Jesus. We believe that Jr. High schoolers are incredibly important to build into—and that they are a big part of the church. Our hope is that in the three years that we have students in our ministry, we can teach them important skills to remain, or become followers of God throughout high school. We hope that the things they learn in Elevate will not just help them through the trials of Jr. High life, but will stick with them throughout their lives.
Doors open at 5:15 p.m. on Saturdays, and 8:45 & 11 a.m. on Sundays.
If you’re an adult or a high school student and you’d like to be a leader, please contact Katie Andre.
Elevate is always better with friendships. We cultivate community through small groups that meet during each weekend service. Here's how you can join:
- Come to the same service consistently. Our small groups are formed based on service time, age/gender, and where you’ll attend high school.
- Check in at the "New Student Kiosk" and a staff member will help get you connected your first week.
- Sit with your small group during the service—then connect with your friends and talk about the message.
The Big 3 EventsElevate offers three big events each year to help Jr. High kids grow in their faith, make new friends, and have fun! Click here to learn about what's coming up!
This Weekend, March 17/18, students will take over the main auditorium to share some stories and to celebrate Baptism! We'll gather in the Activity Center and promptly walk together once service begins. Don't miss this incredible weekend we have planned!
